As a city dweller, my dog-walking ritual has become a streamlined process.
The necessary supplies include:
2) at least two poo bags
3) at least two drinks before your departure (optional)
Turns out, my regimented routine can come in handy with other dog walkers as well.
First I saw the struggle. Two dogs, one owner. The small dog wouldn’t budge—sprawled flat on the sidewalk—while the big dog pulled at the owner’s hand.
“I can’t believe I forgot the treats…” I heard the frustrated man mumble as I passed by. Having just dropped Woody the Black Lab off at home, I checked to see if I still had any goodies on board. Bingo.
“You need treats?” I inquired, handing him a random assortment of Woody’s favorites.
As the owner explained to me that the little dog requires some kind of food as an incentive to make it around the block, the big dog pooped on the sidewalk. He looked helplessly at the brownish pile and sighed.
“Let me give you a poo bag, too” I said reassuringly before continuing on my way.
